As Head of UX Design for an oil derivatives trading company, it has been my responsibility to generate an understanding of user needs from traders, brokers and other user types, and share that understanding across the firm, helping to guide strategic decisions from the executive level down with provable evidence of need to guarantee successful outcomes in revising complex trading, data and information platforms.
Working as a Senior UX Design consultant for a range of different FinTech clients, I help production teams build guaranteed successful solutions that address the requirements of their users, and leverage opportunities to outstrip their competition. I have also been working to help mature the UX discipline within Scott Logic, illustrating better UX practices with fellow designers, advocating the benefits of a wider knowledge of UX practices with non-design colleagues with blog posts and presentations.
I previously ran my own design solutions company, contracting myself out as a UX Design consultant to companies such as Somo, Clyde & Co, Open Business Associates, PGA Design and Carter Camerons.
Starting as a Front-end Developer for Springer Healthcare, I went on to become a Senior UX Designer for a number of significant projects, working with teams across the UK, Germany, India and the US, until I ended up as Lead UX Designer managing a team of six designers in Pune, India.
Creating the new Barclays One portal for higher-earning clients.
Starting as a Graphic Designer, I quickly added my knowledge of web design and animation to create sites and presentations, using 3D animations to help sell large scale commercial properties, such as city bank offices, The Queens Club and parts of 30 St Mary Axe.
